invented by the current administration now so it's a many of those here today and they say that patience is really running out they are willing to grant a bit of leeway to this relatively new administration headed by president brought forward but now they want some action and they want some changes take place they also think the administration should be tackling the wrong area so they targeted the so-called ninety nine percent those who are probably more susceptible exposed to cuts to health care education and salaries and they also fear that spain is going down a very similar path to that of greece that it comes to tackling this financial crisis left bear in mind here that spain has the worst unemployment rate in the whole of the eurozone about twenty five percent of the population and when you look at the crowd amassed here today when you see just how much was the use of the nation of course the spanish administration does have a job see they need to cut the deficit down safely they plan to do that by eighty

1:05 pm
their demands were too huge were too vague also it would be people out to trade probably thousands of people so yes there are sangar their service and rants against the government the spanish government is trying to resist dimes because they know it's some popular but i'm afraid they will probably bowed to the to the dictates of brussels once again and we'll have more maybe tax racers and old that sort of thing. where we're watching these live pictures from madrid and as you can see the police and the protesters have set a tea just kind of take into each other they would see police grabbing some of the protesters you seem to be using their batons they seem to be a little bit of chaos going on around and some people just holding up their hand saying let's just do this peacefully please grabbing some other people they obviously leading them away to try to keep the peace. mall it's just it's it's
1:06 pm
it's obviously getting a little bit out of hand with the police trying to keep calm. and some of the protests and they just trying to say we're here to protest. but i do keep you posted on what's happening in madrid as bullets and things. and they say in process the. graham we look at how the lack of economic recovery elsewhere in europe is threatening to set back the lives of for years to come new study in britain suggests no and incomes will win the away and leave people poorer in the future than there ever even been today the basis of a start. two powerful explosions have rocked a military academy in the syrian capital of damascus rebel groups have claimed responsibility saying they are responding to military operations in the city a middle east correspondent policia is keeping across developments. well on tuesday
1:07 pm
morning there were two explosive devices that were planted in the martyr's son's school a military school in the syrian capital of damascus now from the information we have the devices were planted in two separate areas they ruptured causing fire to those parts of the building it's not hit clear the exact number of casualties we certainly hearing that a number of people have been injured the early reports that scores of people have been injured and killed we know that fire did erupt in two separate parts of the building and also early reports of an explosion near the airport it is believed that the attack was carried out because it was suspected that there were intelligence officers or security officers inside the building now two rebel groups have come forward to take responsibility for this attack the one is the revolutionary council in damascus that has links with al qaida it is a group that is seeking the overthrow of the syrian president bashar assad a group that is also against dialogue and in a statement that it issued it's said that this attack was in response to the syrian
1:08 pm
army's operations in the syrian capital and now for months there have been fighting between the syrian troops as well as opposition forces in the capital city of damascus as well as in the country's second largest city of aleppo the fighting has continued since last year march for the daily casualty count continuing to climb. the rebels' leg of their trials of syrians anyway so it's safe for them to admit terrorism says dr ali mohammed editor in chief of the syrian tribe you need a channel. well it's only suggests that they are not shy anymore about their actual terrorist nature these guys have been blaming the government for everything since nobody believes them anymore it seems that they decided to claim responsibility and the second thing is that this should have a great impact on the public opinion in syria and it did long ago because everybody knows that it's terrible that our bombing the question is going to affect the
1:09 pm
opinions of powerful powers like the u.s. and nato nations the attack in damascus comes amid a major international gathering in new york where the ongoing crisis in syria is among the main topics being tackled. following the un general assembly meeting. well u.s. president barack obama addressed the international body and with respect to syria the u.s. leader said the regime of bashar al assad must come to an end when referencing syria president obama said that the international community must be engaged to assure that what began as citizens demanding their rights does not end in a cycle of sectarian violence now as we've been reporting over the past year and a half the u.s. and its western allies have been fiercely pushing and campaigning for for regime change for bashar al assad to step down and the u.s. and europeans have been supporting the opposition but the reality of the ground on
1:10 pm
the ground in syria is just getting worse as a matter of fact joint special envoy lakhdar brahimi just briefed the security council a day ago on the circumstance against syria he said it is going from bad to worse right now there's no new plans in place on how to scale down the violence and how to lead both sides to a peaceful path in addition to syria president obama spoke very heavily about the anti-american demonstrations that are blazing through the muslim world demonstrations that were sparked on september eleventh when he addressed the matter of this muslim video that was made in the u.s. and posted on you tube he calls it a crude and disgusting video that sparked outrage of the muslim world he said the u.s. government had nothing to do with that video and does not endorse that video in any way as a matter of fact u.s. officials have condemned it. on the left there's no video you know words that can justify. on u.s.
1:11 pm
embassies or consulates or the killing of an american ambassador and three other american officials in the view of u.s. president barack obama he believes that it's. extremists that are co-opting the anger that is the frustrations that is being shown towards the u.s. and that is what inciting more of this anti-american sentiment but it's interesting to point out that present. obama in his speech was talking about how the u.s. has helped or supported many countries such as tunisia egypt libya and yemen supported the rights of the people that's what he said but the irony is that we've seen these things anti merican demonstrations taking place in those countries so the matter is is this just about a video or is this about u.s. foreign policy. we'll be back with more often a short break stay with us. looters
1:12 pm
that takes your breath away a few tourists travel to these paul it's no prepackaged comfort but they joy is the wildest guaranteed if gagne's a zoology professor he works in the u.s. and travels to these remote areas in russia every summer as he says he confines untouched landscapes like these anywhere else in the world. we're going off the list below sea line. if i go in the wrong the wrong and surprise you will go straight to the water and so we did our plan to get closer to the sea lion and shake its flipper failed. one animal whose par you definitely wouldn't want to shake here is the brown bear you can literally spot agrees the here by every small weaver. where the bears are they have a very well be able to think i will have to keep an eye

a wind direction at. them and both uphill that could be dangerous so we won't go yes we shall but people require. it. and quiet we went but the wind was not on our side and the bear got away and they're usually the first to avoid contact with humans but during spawning time when both people and bears go fishing people often shoot at them to scare them away and every year here in the region you hear about someone being killed by the predators. but at the mugger down nature reserve where we are no one disturbs the bears peanuts another local resident to haiti's peace being disturbed here is the howlers eagle in has a wingspan of two and a half meters ignace only here in russia far east because of the bundles of salmon and sea gulls which feed the giant bird in his studies if gainey focuses on birds

1:17 pm
japanese coast guard vessels use their water cannon on the taiwanese fishing boats the thai were nice coast guard vessels then turned their water cannon on the japanese ships a few hours after it all started the taiwanese vessels withdrew but all of this was watched by nearby chinese vessels that were waiting outside of the disputed waters the islands themselves are a small group of unpopulated rocky outcrops attention really began after it was thought that there may be large mineral resources in the surrounding waters japan has been holding meetings with china to try and calm the dispute this latest tension began after japan bought the islands from a private owner and nationalize them that cause huge protests in a number of chinese cities china has made it clear that that japan should be under no illusion in the dispute and that it will accept no infringement it says of what
1:18 pm
it considers its territorial integrity taiwan japan and china all claim the islands as their own and there are other players including the us that have security interests in the region domestic politics in both china and japan are due to undergo large changes in the coming months and that puts pressure on the leaders there to show that they are not backing down all of which has led to fears that this dispute over these small islands could lead to some very big consequences. cia drone strikes in pakistan are having a devastating impact on civilians this is according to a new american study the reports are just the attacks are claimed to be surgically precised do little to improve u.s. security tell greyson an end to drone activists and filmmakers says the drone campaign only in poznan surges see in a supposed to confront i actually think the us and
1:19 pm
a lot of the people back me up on this need to actually take a back step and let pakistan deal with its all issues within its own territory and stop trying to create more problems because the drone strikes are just creating you know a lot more radicalization of young people in the tribal areas civilians are classed as over and a lot of the time i think that there's no indication as to who is actually being killed but it's not in the interests of the us try gentrify civilian victims because by killing civilians they're going against a lot of their own legislation and and when they are killing insurgents you know these are alleged insurgents and you know it's basically innocent until proven guilty you know a lot of these people haven't been to court. recovery and prosperity may european promise with a catch the snag being years of austerity and cuts but in britain if you're in the
1:20 pm
bottom half of the household income chart it looks like you don't have much to look forward to financially either way our desire for us describes an economic recovery that may leave many behind. britain's in the midst of a double dip recession and everybody is feeling the pinch or are they telling the research survey oh the gap between britain's rich and poor is widening in fact if you're one of the middle income or low income families in the way to tighten your belt even further it's so that by twenty twenty an average low income family could see their net income fall by as much as fifteen percent i think is really worrying for low income households because it shows that we don't just have a growth problem if you like and you. even once growth of quicken households across the bottom half are going to be poor in twenty twenty than they were in twenty that it was so alarming about this latest research is that it's based on very generous assumptions about the future growth in britain what that means is that even if
1:21 pm
person manages to repeat and see you get this piece to the economy it starts slowly dragging its way out of this recession not everybody is going to benefit and the ones who are going to be hardest hit going to be those middle income and low income families now in an age of austerity britain's government's been accused of waging war on britain's poor chancellor george osborne wants to cut a further ten billion from the welfare budget again having that knock on effect to middle income low income families who need the support the most. right and let's go back to our breaking news story this hour the protests in madrid have given way to violence as ranks of riot police charging into crowds of demonstrators we're seeing some brutal scenes yeah as police charge out into the thousand strong crowds of demonstrators beating and arresting very see it certainly looks like the police are taking a hardline approach towards some of the protesters just to remind you people who
